    Pods galore!

    I don’t but I will probably write an article for the library. It’s really not too hard.

    Pods galore!

    Thanks guys. Yeah this is for my mandarin. She is doing well now but I have to admit it was worrisome for awhile as the culture matured. It crashed once because I had no idea what I was doing but now that I harvest the pods (siphoned a gallon of water through a sieve and return the water back to the culture) twice a week she is doing great. Here is a pic of how they look after being collected. there must be thousands here. I wish you could see them all moving around...makes me itch watching them. I used to strain the pods from my algae barn orders that supposedly had 3000+ pods and I didn’t see a fraction of this.

    Just wanted to show off my little pod farm. It’s taken me some time but this thing is cranking out pods like nobody’s business.

    I am. when I eventually upgrade to a larger tank (looking at Waterbox) I will be using your lights again.

    I may be although manually dosing phyto everyday and thining my chaeto every two weeks is cutting into that. 🙂

    Well I am coming up on 9 months. some things look pretty good and some things I would like to see do better. I don't have any issues with problem algae and I have not made any water changes in two months. I do "dose" via my ATO but that's about it. I don't really care for the coralline algae on the back but its too hard to clean. I will let it keep growing and see what it does, At this point just making tweaks and letting things grow in.

    I'm one of them. I'll trade you. ;-)

    It grows like crazy in my reactor. Nitrates are not detectible and phosphates are zero (used one of those mail in testing services to verify). I do dose nitrate to get my levels off zero so that probably plays a part it being so healthy.

    Ha, you can have the first bite

    To be throwing almost all of this out every two weeks.

    Duncan growth

    Just curious. Are these new polyps separate animals that can be fraged some day or all one animal still? I ask because they appear to all be part of the same base.

    Watchu look’n at?

    Oh no I’m not. I half expect “some” bad behavior but I am getting some benefits from him by eating some bubble algae. It’s definitely a balancing act between benefits and liabilities

    Perfect behavior is not expected. I get it

    I have a blue hermit that fights with mine for scraps sometimes. The Emerald just waves him away like "leave me alone kid, ya bother me".
